SO hope to have a board by then and get out a few times to cannonsburg or someplace close by.

Looking at these 2 from Wired.

Option 1 - Camp Seven Valdez
Or
Option 2 - Camp Seven Heritage

what ya think?
The main difference is going to be camber profile. The Heritage is slightly camber dominant with minor rocker in the tip and tail. The Valdez is going to be rockered in the center with cambered sections underneath your feet. Otherwise they are very similar boards. Both would be great just depends on what camber feel you like.

LOL! I always forget to PM/text you this time I remembered. Ended up not going, built a small jib with a piece of PVC in my yard and hit that for a few minutes. Hyperextended my left thumb. Kept going though, but it'll probably be tender tomorrow.

I might head up to Brighton or PK tomorrow, but probably would not be until after lunch.

Thanks guys, I did and got a quick and very helpful response. I think i'll be getting the Camp Seven Heritage RCR 157, with Rome Libertine Boots, and FlowFlite MTN Bindings. All recommended by Randy at Wiredsport.

Thanks again for all your help, and can't wait to get on the mountain.

Just ordered, Happy Birthday to me (26th) Can't wait to hit the mountain. When i get my gear if anyone is up for a run just let me know.

Unless I wake up screaming tomorrow, I'm going to PK. Getting fed up with this flare up. Maybe I'll crash on my R side & undo whatever I did on the L.

Unfortunately, I'll have to make first chair n leave around noon, noon thirty latest. Hope they get the roads unfucked by morning. It SUCKS out here right now. Rig's sliding all over the place.

I was just thinking. I have another weeks vacation set for the first week in Feb. with all that talk about the glades sucking at Highlands. (...Along with my personal experience of sucking at riding them!) If they get another good dump right before or during my next trip up? I think I'll pay for a day ticket to nubs and see If I can't do better in their well maintained glade runs.

But only if they've got a decent amount of fresh to keep the speeds and hard landings reasonably safe! lol!

....well, didn't actually wake up screaming. (Don't scoff. It's happened before!) Still having issues in neck and shoulder tho. It seems to actually become worse while sleeping. ???? Must have shifted something in my neck or upper spine in one of those fails last week.

BUT,... I'm going to PK this morning regardless. Might try for Chiro appt. tomorrow am before heading out to PK or Holly.

If Anyone hitting pk before noon today, look me up say hello!


Edit-
Oh yeah! How was the west side last night? Roads musta sucked, eh? Hope the riding was good!
